The rooms are a little creepier than usual so if you and your friends love the haunted aspect of escape rooms and want to try solving each fairly difficult puzzle with the feeling that someone might be right behind you each and every step of the way, The Lost Soul and Stranded are two must try rooms in LOK’d! that ramp up the creepiness factor by a mile.
